We spent 1 night at this charming hotel as we wanted to see the Xmas market at Chester. The Xmas market was disappointing to say the least although Chester itself is lovely. The hotel is very nice if a little dark in places. The food was good without being sensational and the service was enthusiastic rather than efficient except for in the bar where the staff were brilliant and effortlessly welcoming. The place is quite expensive for what they are offing as the evening meal proved. We were charged quite high prices for acceptable but ordinary food. We had to ask for the peppercorn sauce that was supposed to come with the meal for example.
A downside was the WiFi. Why don't the owners of these places see this as a necessity nowadays? Reception was patchy and the signal faded in and out as we were on the top floor. A log in was required which my windows tablet would not let connect (firewall or something) but the Ipad did. As usual the reception staff hadnt got a clue, although helpful and sympathetic.
If you are touring and using modern technology to help you find local points of interest, you need WiFi!!! Can hotel managers hear this please?
